Weber State College's Institutional Council has given its support to a request to the state Board of Regents to pursue university status for the Ogden school.

Council Chairman Richard Myers, a prime mover of the name change, said the board voted unanimously for the request.The motion approved by the council Thursday asked that WSC President Stephen Nadauld interact with the faculty, staff and state Board of Regents to measure support for a name change. It also recommended that Myers make a formal presentation to the regents' Oct. 20 meeting in Price.

Myers said the name change would help the school in recruitment of faculty and students, improve its image and status, make it easier to obtain external financial support and make the school consistent with other institutions of its size.
